The W. A. Franke College of Business Veteran Student Center (FCB VSC)
Over the past three years Northern Arizona University (NAU) has been creating a campus culture that is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive of veterans and military-affiliated members. Not surprisingly, NAU has quickly become a university recognized for being on the leading edge when it comes to providing service and support for our military and veteran students.
In a resolve to sustain our innovative momentum in this field, The W. A. Franke College of Business (FCB) has undertaken a new initiative at NAU. Craig Van Slyke, PhD, the dean of the Business College has announced that through a very generous gift from FCB and U.S. Navy veteran alum, a center has been created dedicated to the recruitment, transition, retention, and career development of veterans attending The W. A Franke College of Business. This is the first veteran center of its kind nationally dedicated to a business college.
